XanMax® is a combination of natural Lutein and Zeaxanthin extracted from marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta L.). XanMax® is developed using most eco-friendly patented process to deliver Maximum Xanthophyll, Maximum purity, ensuring Maximum bio-availability in any dosage form.
Carotenoids are phytonutrients - nutritional elements - that occur naturally in fruits and vegetables, giving them their distinctive yellow, orange or red colours. There are over 500 Carotenoids occurring in nature, classified as the Carotenes and Xanthophyll. Of the 500+ Carotenoids found in the nature, the human retina selectively absorbs only Lutein and Zeaxanthin as they form an effective shield and protect the eyes from harmful, high energy radiations. As these macular pigments cannot be synthesised in the human body, they need to be supplemented through diet and are hence considered essential.
Balanced nutrition is an integral part of good eye-care. But most diets do not deliver adequate amounts of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and other carotenoids, which are necessary for good vision, simply because, we do not consume enough leafy vegetables. XanMax® plays a pivotal role to bridge this gap and provide sufficient protection for a Healthy Vision, Naturally!
Age Related Macular Denegation (AMD) is one of the leading causes of irreversible loss of vision in persons over 50 years of age. It is a degenerative retinal disease that affects the macula at the centre of the retina. Age, oxidative stress, dietary deficiency of antioxidants, in particular the deficiency of dietary macular pigments viz. Lutein and Zeaxanthin, are the risk factors of AMD.
XanMax® constitutes Xanthophylls, Lutein and Zeaxanthin in a unique combination that delivers optimum macular health in older adults suffering from AMD.
Studies with XanMax® concluded that trans-Zeaxanthin favourably influences deposition of Carotenoids in the macula, thus positively influencing MPOD as compared to the formulation containing a lower dosage of trans-Zeaxanthin. The study also revealed the key role of Meso-Zeaxanthin in macular health, besides the other Xanthophylls viz., trans-Lutein and trans-Zeaxanthin.
